  1. Hot-press hand burn treatment.

    Article - En anglais

    Hand injuries are common in the workplace.

    Modern industrial machines cause complex occupational hand injuries.

    Hot-press contact hand burns generally are encountered by workers in the dry-cleaning industry.

    Seventeen patients with hot-press hand burns were treated at the University of California-Irvine Medical Center Burn Center.

    Eight patients (47%) required skin grafting, seven (41%) were treated with hydrotherapy only, and two (12%) needed flaps.

    These results were not what we expected.
